In brief: Probably same
Inguinal = groin.
A hernia is basically one tissue bulging through an opening. So no such thing as "regular" hernia, though the generic term usually refers to inguinal hernia.

In brief: Depends
I'm not sure what a regular hernia is.
An inguinal hernia is a groin hernia. It is the most common hernia in both sexes. Other common hernias are umbilical hernias and incisional or ventral hernias.
